About the Wine

Our 2021 Grand Detour Pinot Noir was sourced from Landmark’s historic Hop Kiln Estate located on Westside Road in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Crafting this wine from estate grapes grown in the respected Middle Reach of the Russian River Valley AVA gives our winemaker the flexibility to select his favorite blocks with unique grape and rootstock combinations. The fruit for the 2021 Grand Detour was hand-harvested at night and delivered to the winery before sunrise, ensuring the integrity and character of this delicate Pinot Noir.
